Want to see the first single-family home in Illinois to achieve LEED certification? A special tour has been arranged for this LEED Silver home on Saturday, June 26, and spaces are limited.
The Peluso Residence, 277 Pheasant, Bloomingdale, was designed and built as an efficient and modern green home by Alphonso and Michelle Peluso, co-founders of Vertex Architects, LLC, and owners of the home.
The construction cost was $115 per square foot, which is less than half the average on a new-construction home.
The home uses 20 percent less natural gas than the average home due to in-floor radiant heating from two tankless water heaters. A 1,700-gallon underground storage tank collects rooftop water that can be used for watering the yard. The insulation is both spray cell foam and recycled newspaper.
The 3,200-square-foot home offers 4 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows and Energy Star appliances and lighting throughout.
Learn more about the home by viewing its Project Profile.
